Random Acts of Beauty

This week I ran across two examples of Chicagoans doing their part to inject little moments of art and whimsey into our lives:

Air Kiss Tennis

Philip Dawkins (who I’ve written about before) has started a “guerrilla happiness group” called Positive Reinforcements — their latest activity was Air Kiss Tennis Tournament 2007 — “As we described to our participants, ‘Air Kiss Tennis is just like tennis, only instead of balls and rackets, the players blow kisses at one another.’ Clearly.”

Heather's plaque

Neo-Futurist Rachel Claff has installed a series of plaques around the city commemorating events from people’s personal lives — moments like making a snow angel, or laughing so hard that you pee.

Memorial Day II: Background, Phase One, Phase Two, Heather’s Ceremony, Richard’s ceremony, Edward’s ceremony, Brian’s ceremony.
